Why hasn't there been more rebellion in the US lately? What are the indications that a popular movement may develop which leads to revolution? What is meant by revolution, anyway?

Throughout the USA there is discontent. Under the apparently placid political surface there is bubbling dissatisfaction. Yet there has been only limited rebellion, all kept within the limits of Democratic-Republican politics as usual. Certainly, to most people, the possibility of a revolution — an uprising against capitalism and its state — seems distant, if not absurd. I want to argue that a revolution is quite possible (but not inevitable). And I want to clarify what revolution means.

Most political theorists ask why there are occasional rebellions and revolutions. I think it is more fruitful to ask why there are not more rebellions — popular struggles leading up to revolutions. Consider the unfairness of a tiny minority — the “one percent” — ruling over and getting rich from the big majority. Consider the dangers of ecological catastrophe, economic collapse, and nuclear war, not to mention many other issues of oppression and unfairness. Why do people put up with this? Why isn’t there at least a large movement to get rid of this system?

The Revolutionary Confederation of Anarcho-Syndicalists - N. I. Makhno (Революционная конфедерация анархо-синдикалистов им. Н. И. Махно), established in Ukraine in 1994, was one of the most famous anarchist organizations which emerged from the former Soviet Union. Platformist in essence, the organization managed to assemble a cohort of vigorous activists who wanted to adopt a strategic and responsible approach to the question of achieving a libertarian society.

The RKAS survived many troubles, it was involved in the miners' strike and had several long-tem projects, but it was not without its internal squabbles and splits. Over the past year, however, the organization has been heard from less and less. To find out what had happened to the RKAS, and also hear their opinion on the current events in Ukraine, our Russia-based comrades of Autonomous Action interviewed a comrade from the RKAS, Samurai.

"One Size Fits All", caricatura de Leonardo Ríos

Las recientes elecciones presidenciales en Chile, donde la no participación –superior al 50%- fue el ganador absoluto, eran predecibles de no ser por la aparición de un sector que se reclama de intención revolucionaria y de izquierda libertaria en el escenario político-electoral. La Red Libertaria (RL) se sumó decididamente y de manera entusiasta a la plataforma “Todos a la Moneda”, cuyo candidato fue Marcel Claude.

El objetivo nuestro no es cuestionar las formas mediante las cuales esta decisión fue tomada (o impuesta, según quien opine) y sus implicancias para el movimiento libertario en Chile. Tampoco nos ocupa, primordialmente, el impacto que tal decisión tiene para el campo específico que se reclama proveniente de la tradición anarquista. Mucho menos nos proponemos hacer un análisis del programa de “Todos a La Moneda” o de las fuerzas políticas que sustentaron esta plataforma. Nos interesa, en cambio, evaluar el impacto que esta decisión tiene para un sector mucho más amplio del pueblo que el representado por esta plataforma electoral y mucho más amplio que aquellos sectores provenientes de la tradición libertaria; compartimos nuestras reflexiones para contribuir al debate de carácter táctico y estratégico en este proceso de recomposición del movimiento social en Chile.

En consecuencia, es necesario seguir fomentando las luchas reivindicativas y socioeconómicas en el seno de la clase trabajadora y el conjunto del pueblo para de esta forma, en praxis dialéctica, ir avanzando en la conformación de una conciencia de clase para sí y la politización de las/os trabajadores de base. Esto último bajo un prisma materialista histórico de la realidad social y de la lucha de clases, rechazando lecturas apresuradas e idealistas que apuestan a que desde el mundo político, desde la democracia representativa en sintonía burguesa, en definitiva desde el Estado- Gobierno y Parlamento- se puede romper el cerrojo de la institucionalidad dictatorial heredada y la Constitución de 1980.

Høstens kongressdeltakere og observatører smiler for kamera

Den 19. og 20. oktober holdt Motmakt høstkongress i Oslo. Denne kongressen var litt annerledes enn de tidligere kongressene. Vi hadde for første gang representanter fra tre lokallag til stede, og spørsmålet var hvordan disse lokallagene skulle koordineres fremover.

20. oktober 2013 ble Motmakt stiftet som føderasjon. Men hva er en føderasjon? Nå som Motmakt har blitt en, er det på sin plass at vi redegjør hva vi mener med det, og hvorfor vi har valgt denne måten å organisere oss på. Med denne artikkelen håper vi å kunne sette tankene i sving hos andre som også har lyst til å organisere seg på en så demokratisk måte som mulig.
